So for the past few months I’ve had random friends deal with issues relating to the Xbox, primarily with red rings, etc. I didn’t know if my console was still under a warranty, but I didn’t really think much of it–until today, that is.

I turned off the console, and decided to boot it back up only to get a red ring, with the error code E 74.

Needless to say that I’ve tried the troubleshooting for it, and it’s still unresolved. My warranty expired apparently, so the Xbox repairs would be out of my pocket. I’m not sure what I plan on doing, but I’ll probably end up dropping out some cash for a new system on Tuesday.

Hopefully I can get my sister’s friend to let me borrow his system for the time being. And oddly enough, I’m surprisingly calm about it right now.

  1. I haven’t gotten the red ring, but our remote (to play dvd’s) died, and now amount of new batteries is fixing the problem.

    Screw Microsoft, go with Sony or maybe get a Wii lol

  2. whenever i hear about the ring of death i can’t help thinking of the movie with Naomi Watts
